In today’s episode, Eric Helms takes the stage to discuss a variety of training concepts relevant to strength and physique athletes.
Eric begins the episode by discussing progressive overload and how contrary to popular belief, simply adding weight to the bar doesn’t necessarily mean one is inducing progressive overload. Eric then goes on to differentiate periodization from programming and describe how each of these concepts apply practically to bodybuilders and powerlifters. To conclude the episode, Eric discusses the limitations of science and the limitations of anecdotes and observations.
How complex does your training need to be if you’re a bodybuilder? What else besides research makes up evidence-based practice? What is a current hypothesis on repetition zone’s effect on fiber type specific hypertrophy? For the answers to all these questions and many more, check out today’s episode!
